Maiden's Stone or Kiztasi Istanbul

Maiden's Stone or Kiztasi Istanbul
Close to Fatih Mosque on Kıztasi Road is this Byzantine column standing in the square that takes its name; it is made from granite and has a statue of the winged Greek goddess of Victory, Nike. It was once known as Marcian’s Column as it was built for Emperor Marcian (450-457) and it has an inscription showing it was the work of Prefect Tatianus Decius. There was originally a statue of the Emperor on top but it is believed to have been stolen in 1204 by the Venetians and is now in Bari.  



In the past because of its name it has been confused with the lost Column of Venus that was said to sway slightly when true virgins walked passed but in fact its name comes from the image of Nike. This is one of four Byzantine columns to have survived in Istanbul; the others are the Goths Column , the Cemberlitas , and the Column of Arcadius .
